Hi there.
When I was first starting out, no one ever
took the time to say anything on my shots.

I can't give you constructive feedback here,
as your work seems to lack an overall
understanding of the principles of animation.

However, I emplore you to seek out these
books, and began your studies.

"Character Animation Crash Course"-Eric Goldberg
"Acting for Animators"- Revised Edition
"How to Cheat in Maya 2012/2014"-Lutha Roy

There are many more, but these will get you
started. Best of luck on your journey!

James Van Dam:

Make sure everything is out of stepped animation and splined. Also remember fallow though and overlapping action.

Amartya Mukherji:

There is a lot of scope for improvement. Try to figure out the timing after you visualize the acting you want to do, then start animating a shot. Shooting your own video reference would help you a lot.

Danny Kneip:

Keep trying!

Aaron Clement:

A bit poppy and linear. I don't get the smile at the end.
